Cold Poached Trout With Lemon & Mint


by Chef Lucia Watson



This is one of my all-time favorites, especially prepared the evening after that first trout trip of spring, slipped into the refrigerator to be enjoyed the next noon, after another morning of trout fishing. Makes a wonderful light dinner, too. This recipe serves four. I serve it with tabouleh salad and French bread.

4 whole brook trout


2 lemons, sliced

1/2 c. mint leaves

dash of black pepper


1 crushed garlic clove, pealed

Dash of white wine or vinegar

Combine all the above except the trout in a deep pan or fish poacher with 2 quarts water. Bring to a simmer and gently slide in the trout. The trout should be immersed in the water. Cook at a gentle simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat and gently remove the trout. Chill.

In a blender combine:

1/4 c. vinegar or lemon juice

1 clove garlic, crushed and peeled

1 tbsp. smooth dijon mustard

zest of 1 lemon

dash of salt and pepper

1 generous tbsp. mint (6 to 10 large fresh leaves)

Blend 30 seconds to 1 minute. Then while the blender is running, add 3/4 cup oil in a slow steady stream. If the dressing is too thick, add a few drops of water. Taste, adjust seasoning, and chill.

Tabouleh

1 c. bulgur wheat

11⁄2 c. boiling water

Combine and let sit to absorb and cool. Toss with dressing, and add fresh chopped mint, red onions, cucumber, tomatoes, parsley, salt, and pepper. n
